Dark Chocolate Prevents Wrinkles
Did you know eating a chocolate bar a day can in fact prevent wrinkles? It is a well known fact that dark chocolate is filled with antioxidants. Thanks to the great researchers at Barry Callebaut, the world’s leading chocolate maker, now you have an excuse to indulge yourself on a regular basis. Yes, it’s true: they have developed chocolate bars filled with added antioxidants, flavonoids, and great taste.
Flavonoids are natural compounds found in berries, red wine, green tea and cocoa beans. These enriched antioxidants help repair blood vessels, lower cholesterol, and promote brain functionality by increasing the blood flow to the brain.
By having healthier organs and better blood circulation, elastic fibres in your skin are able to regenerate more quickly, instead of slowing down as you age, thus making your skin smoother, more elastic, more hydrated, and healthier looking. What could be better?
However, don’t forget that good things are only good in moderation. Chocolate cake, chocolate chip cookies, and white chocolate do not provide the antioxidants that keep our skin healthy. They contain high amounts of sugar, and ingredients that are not beneficial for our health. If you pay attention to the cocoa content in the list of ingredients, you will see that dark chocolate has the most flavoniods and antioxidants.
So remember, you can have great tasting chocolate, and healthy looking skin, too!
